Massive floodwaters washed away roads and bridges in and around Yellowstone National Park on Monday, forcing visitors to evacuate parts of the iconic park. All entrances to the park were closed due to the floods. Officials confirmed that there were no immediate reports of injuries. The worst damage happened in the northern part of the park where a bridge washed out over a creek, and roads were badly undercut by churning floodwaters. Yellowstone officials were evacuating the northern part of the park, park Superintendent Cam Sholly said in a statement.
“We will not know timing of the park’s reopening until flood waters subside and we’re able to assess the damage throughout the park,” Sholly said in the statement.
